If you live in a area with hard water, you probably have hard water deposits on everything, including bathtubs, showers and sinks. These deposits make faucets and fixtures an eyesore. We found a solution that works pretty well!
Epsom Salt Scrub uses salt crystals that are just abrasive enough to remove the hard water deposits. Added baking soda, castile soap, and lemon essential oil do the rest of the cleaning.
Epsom Salt Scrub
- Add all ingredients to the jar in order and stir together until well incorporated.
- To use, apply to dry shower walls, bathtubs, fixtures, or faucets with a warm wet cloth. Scrub for a few minutes in a circular motion. Let sit for a few minutes before rubbing again. Rinse off with warm water. Repeat if needed.

Now that we are clear on that subject, let’s talk about how to make it a pleasant experience! This Deodorizing Toilet Spray is meant to be used before the elimination process begins. When you spray it in the toilet, the ingredients create a film on top of the water. This creates a barrier and fresh scent on top of the water so as you do your business it traps the smell beneath the surface. The food coloring is optional but is a nice reassurance that it works.
Some great essential oil blend recipes for a toilet spray include the following:
5 drops lemongrass
5 drops bergamot
5 drops grapefruit
4 drops lavender
4 drops peppermint
4 drops rosemary
2 drops melaleuca
5 drops cedarwood
4 drops lemon
2 drops rosemary
Deodorizing Toilet Spray
- Place glycerin, alcohol, and essential oils in the spray bottle. Screw lid on, and shake to combine.
- Unscrew the lid, and add the water and food coloring. Place the spray top on the bottle again, and shake to combine.
- To use, shake the bottle, and then spray a few times in the toilet before you do your business.
